Print the octagonal pattern

The octagonal pattern is a geometric pattern consisting of octagon shapes arranged in a specific manner. In this article, we will discuss how to generate the octagonal pattern using C programming. The octagonal pattern can be formed by printing a series of stars (*) and spaces in a specific order.

Problem Statement:

Write a program to print the octagonal pattern of a given size. The program should take an integer as input representing the size of the octagon's side, and it should output the octagonal pattern accordingly.

Explanation with an Example:

Let's consider an example to understand the problem and its solution. Suppose we want to print the octagonal pattern for a size of 4. The expected output will be as follows:

      * * * *
     * * * * *
    * * * * * *
   * * * * * * *
   * * * * * * *
   * * * * * * *
   * * * * * * *
    * * * * * *
     * * * * *
      * * * *
  

Algorithm:

To solve this problem, we can follow these steps:

  1. Define a function to print spaces. This function will take an integer as input representing the number of spaces to be printed. Inside the function, use a loop to print the required number of spaces.
  2. Define a function to print symbols (stars '*'). This function will take an integer as input representing the number of symbols to be printed. Inside the function, use a loop to print the required number of symbols.
  3. Define the main function. Inside the main function, we will call the other two functions to print the octagonal pattern.
  4. Within the main function, iterate from 0 to size-1 and do the following:
    • Print spaces(size-i) using the space function.
    • Print symbols(size+i) using the print_symbol function.
    • Print a new line.
  5. Next, iterate from 0 to size-2 and do the following:
    • Print a space.
    • Print symbols((size)*2-1) using the print_symbol function.
    • Print a new line.
  6. Finally, iterate from 0 to size-2 and do the following:
    • Print spaces(i+2) using the space function.
    • Print symbols((size-1)*2-i) using the print_symbol function.
    • Print a new line.

Pseudocode:

function space(size):
    for counter from 0 to size-1:
        print a space

function print_symbol(size):
    for counter from 0 to size-1:
        print a symbol '* '

function print_octagonal(size):
    if size < 0:
        return
    print "Side: size"
    for i from 0 to size-1:
        space(size-i)
        print_symbol(size+i)
        print a new line
    for i from 0 to size-2:
        print a space
        print_symbol((size)*2-1)
        print a new line
    for i from 0 to size-2:
        space(i+2)
        print_symbol((size-1)*2-i)
        print a new line

function main():
    print_octagonal(4)
    print_octagonal(5)
    print_octagonal(7)

Code Solution

//C Program 
//Print the octagonal pattern
#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>

/*Include Space of given size*/
void space(int size) {

  int counter = 0;

  for (counter = 0; counter < size; counter++) {

    //Add space
    printf(" ");
  }
}

void print_symbol(int size) {
  int counter = 0;
  for (counter = 0; counter < size; counter++) {
    printf("* ");
  }
}
//Display octagonal pattern of given side 
void print_octagonal(int size) {
  if(size<0 )
  {
    return;
  }
  
  printf("\n  Side : %d \n\n", size);
  
  int j=0;
  int i = 0;

  for (i = 0; i < size; ++i)
  {  
    //Print top section
    space(size-i);
    print_symbol(size+i);
    printf("\n");
  }
  for (i = 0; i < size-1; ++i)
  {  
    //Display middle layer
    printf(" ");
    print_symbol((size)*2-1);
    printf("\n");
  }
  for (i = 0; i < size-1; ++i)
  {  
    //Display bottom layer
    space(i+2);
    print_symbol((size-1)*2-i);
    printf("\n");
  }
}

int main() {
  //Test Cases
  print_octagonal(4);
  print_octagonal(5);
  print_octagonal(7);
  return 0;
}

Output

  Side : 4

Time Complexity Analysis:

The time complexity of the program is primarily determined by the size of the octagon, denoted by the variable 'size'.

  • The space function and the print_symbol function both have a time complexity of O(size) as they involve a loop that runs 'size' number of times.
  • The print_octagonal function consists of three loops: one runs 'size' times, and the other two run 'size-2' times. Therefore, the time complexity of the print_octagonal function is O(size).
  • The main function calls the print_octagonal function three times, so the time complexity of the main function is also O(size).

Overall, the time complexity of the program is O(size).

Resultant Output Explanation:

The program prints the octagonal pattern for three different sizes: 4, 5, and 7.

The output is displayed in the form of an octagon made up of asterisks (*), with each line representing a row of the octagon. The spaces are used to align the asterisks correctly to form the octagonal shape.

The first row starts with four spaces and then prints four asterisks, followed by a newline character.

The next rows follow a similar pattern, increasing the number of asterisks in each row until the middle layer is reached. In the middle layer, a single space is printed, followed by a row with (size*2-1) asterisks.

After the middle layer, the rows start decreasing in the number of asterisks until the last row, which has the same number of asterisks as the first row.

The output for each size is separated by a blank line.
